Default Help new hedgie owner!!

So I just got my cute 3 month old hedgie girl today and I am a new owner! Right now I don't have a CHE over my hedgies cage and my house is about 70 degrees right now. I can't get a CHE until tomorrow and I've been reading all these posts to figure out if she will be ok but I am just really concerned. She is running on her wheel and eating and drinking right now but I can't really feel her belly to see if it's cold because she is not really comfortable with me. HELP will she be ok until tomorrow?!?

Keep a very close eye on her until you have the heat set up. If her tummy feels cold to the touch you'll need to warm her up gradually. Try sticking her in your shirt, against your skin.

In the meantime, if you can increase your house's temperature to at least 74, that would keep her safe. If not, you can try a space heater in the room she's in if you have one laying around. If you can't do either of those things just watch her extremely closely for wobbling, unresponsiveness, or coldness to the touch. Get that CHE, thermometer, and thermostat as soon as possible!
